Hey, fake DEC employee when you read something on Wikipedia better read it the right way.

The DEC Alpha version of VMS was the one that WindowsNT originated from.

And everything you read on the Internet (including Wackypedia) is true.

Windows NT WAS NOT based on VMS. There's stuff I recognise as being kind of inspired by VMS, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED by my right hand impacting my forehead to understrike the exhortation "And if they actually copied this, why the bloody hell have they left out ... " followed by a lengthy list of useful features related to it.

DEC #201462
